    I kept thinking someone had quoted that line in a Midsomer Murders episode but now I've just thought it's quoted in an Inspector Jury novel instead.

    Your turn to write the poetry, BTW. :D

    Hope you are OK A100. I remember when I first joined this forum you were welcoming, helpful, supportive and a little bit edgy and challenging (I liked that). I hope the forum can help you with your current challenges - please let us know if we can. Or just rant if you like. We’re listening.

    It's a wonderful feeling when you find you fit in smaller sizes. Congratulations!

    Thank you, @Alexandra100. I'm glad to hear from you. I've missed you!

    I'm very sorry things have been difficult for you. It's good to see you back on (the) board. :)

    I rarely contact anyone offline anymore, it takes less energy for me to log on and read what everyone posts, and I don't have to be "up" or dressed or "on."

    Oops -- in case @jjraak is reading this, I know I (and others) were begged to not post anymore in our pajamas but right now I'm properly dressed in a T-shirt and sweatpants (new but already loose) so for today I'm all correct and presentable even if not in breeches and tall boots and a white shirt with stock tie. :D

    Hugs, @Alexandra100 and purrs. ^. .^

    @SaskiaKC Did you know or did I say before Judith's Aunt and Uncle used to own a stud farm in the Calgary area of Canada.

    I don't think I knew that. I do remember wanting to visit Calgary when I was a kid because of a book I read that started out near Lethbridge and I think ended up in Calgary.

    I just learned last night that a longtime horsey friend of mine, who I have seen doing very proper dressage in breeches and tall boots on a lovely half-Thoroughbred, after her divorce wanted to meet a cowboy and live on a ranch and raise horses. I told her we should retire to Oregon and meet cowboys.

    But Alberta would be nice too (and I have friends who have friends there).

    Good morning all. It’s a 5.6 for me this morning after a very large, fabulous and carnivorous birthday meal last night. The meat just kept on coming (one of those Brazilian barbecue places) and I doubt I’ll need to eat for a week.

    I had a bad day yesterday due to binge eating session and my blood sugar was 13 when I went to bed.

    Had an awful night's sleep constantly waking up with a very dry mouth.

    When I tested this morning my blood sugar was 5.8 @ 0700. That is low for me as I usually have a reading of 7.something @ 0700.

    Could this lower than usual reading be due to the binge forcing my system to deal more efficiently with the excess sugar overnight.

    After yesterday’s 10 which I was happy about (which I know seems crazy to be happy about such a high number!).

    Today I woke up to a 12.8 again :(

    I did eat slightly more carbs yesterday as I had a meal out so perhaps that effected the reading. Although my DSN had told me to eat a few more carbs since raising my insulin.

    Have a lovely Sunday everyone! I certainly won’t be as I have a full day of university classes!! :)

    Morning. A 5.2 for me this morning which is close to what I have as my ‘acceptable’ threshold. And I’m totally blaming my husband for my break of under 5 fbgs. He popped to the pub for a couple at 3pm and was bringing my food back with him when he came home. Which he did. At 9.45 :rolleyes: eating that late always messes me up. Good job I love him ;)

    Good morning each. I am still on tour but like to check in to see how my betters do things. Happy birthday @Goonergal - hope none of the steak was flat IRON(s):angelic: @DJC3 not entirely sure how one could over celebrate such good news - BTW may not have congratulated you yet. One wishes all and sundry the most spiffing of days with jolly japes all round.

    @Goonergal happy birthday glad you had such a great celebration meal.
    @DJC3 if anyone deserves chocolate you do!
    @Inchindown that was a lucky escape!
    @Emma_369 that made me laugh better late than never!
    Have a great Sunday everyone. Stay well safe and (note to self) in control.
